Alexandre Lacazette takes Tino Asprilla 20 year old record

Alexandre Lacazette takes Tino Asprilla 20 year old record

"The most important thing is that he does score goals".

"You expect Arsenal to control the game a bit more", Henry told Sky Sports.

It wasn't hard to be impressed with Alexandre Lacazette's Premier League debut against Leicester City last Friday. He took to the game very well and things will only get better as the new man settles into both the league and his new team.

According to the French manager: "It's impossible to keep all the strikers happy when they don't play, but we have many games and hopefully I can give them all a good number of games".

Arsene Wenger's side won their third FA Cup title in four seasons last term by defeating Premier League champions Chelsea and also have claimed the FA Community Shield at the expense of same Antonio Conte's Blues. "The Foxes" boss has seen numerous players be linked with moves away from the King Power Stadium in recent times, with Riyad Mahrez, Demarai Gray, Tom Lawrence and Danny Drinkwater all subjects of various reports. Why don't you play the other ball? As they exchanged pleasantries, the man - who had immediately recognised him - asked him if he appreciated how significant a presence the Premier League was in the country's daily life. Yes, you score goals and we know Arsenal will score, but you need to be able to not concede. That's where we want to go.

The summer signing from Lyon shifted out to the left against Leicester to accommodate match-winner Olivier Giroud but Henry sees Lacazette's long-term role as a central striker.

Newcastle United took on Sheffield Wednesday on 9 August 1997 and Tino scored both goals in a 2-1 win. But based on how they played, I saw that too often a year ago.
